Museum of Button

The Museum of Button (Musée du Bouton) is open, in Estévenens

Nicola Beaupain didn't want the buttons of her grandmother to disappear. As a child, the buttons fascinated her, and today, the magic goes on. She has decided to create a Museum of Button in her renovated farm in Estévenens.

Very soon, she received a lot of boxes filled with buttons from all around the area. With some friends, she started to count them, sort them and sew them on wood panels covered with tissue, that will be shown at the different exhibitions.

50'000 buttons of all shapes, colors and origins have been sewed. The oldest buttons come from the 16th Century, but most of the pieces are from the 19th and 20th Century.
Come discover the history of buttons in Estévenens.
